TECoSA Seminar – Real-time Virtualization, Concurrency Platforms, and Middleware: from Devices to Edge Servers
March 4, 15:00 – 16:30
We aim to bring you a TECoSA Seminar at kl.15 on the first Thursday of each month. This Spring they will be on-line, and all are welcome to join. Each invited speaker will talk for about 40 minutes, followed by a panel discussion coordinated by TECoSA members.
The fifth speaker in our series is Prof. Chris Gill from Washington University in St. Louis. You can read more about his research here: https://datasciences.wustl.edu/people/chris-gill/
The abstract is below. Please email email@example.com to register!
Real-time Virtualization, Concurrency Platforms, and Middleware: from Devices to Edge Servers
ABSTRACT: As embedded devices, platforms, and software become ever more sophisticated, the range of real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical applications they enable becomes increasingly broad, diverse, and compelling. Especially over the past decade, individual advances in sensing, actuation, computation, communication, and control have given rise to an unprecedented proliferation of applications in domains ranging from increasingly autonomous vehicles to medical cyber-physical systems to real-time hybrid physical/simulated systems. With this progress, however, come further technical challenges that must be addressed to sustain such technical evolution and impact.
This talk will first describe selected recent advances in real-time scheduling theory, their realization within real-time virtualization and concurrency platforms and middleware, and limitations of the state of the art that remain even with those advances. It will then suggest promising combinations of those advances, which if fully integrated may launch a new generation of adaptive real-time systems that can respond dynamically to changing demands, while still maintaining assurance of correct timing behavior. Finally, this talk will describe open problems and suggest candidate approaches towards addressing them, to achieve such a synthesis of techniques, and the potential impacts that can have.
